This inequity erent but is rendered even more pronounced by the k of intre-DD/I career rotation planning. According to statistice touted by the Office of Personnel as of February 1956/ the average grade of Agency personnel is 8.8, the average grade for DD/1 offices is 8.8 and the average grade for OCR is 7.0.

In the Graphics Register, senior analysts in the Analysis Section of the Photographic Branch occupy GB4 and 080.7 positions. A review of the 'work involved in these functions reveale substan. tive responsibilities and research capabilities of at least a 08.41 level. In the Document Branch of the CIA Library, the position of the Chief is classi. Lied only as a 113..11 although the position involves the supervision and direction of loyees. It is believed that this position co be raised to at least a 08,12 on the basis of this fact alone. Similarly, the majority of the Information Control Clerks in the Distribution Section of the Document Braneh are carried at the O8.6 level, although their reeponsibilities involve the review of intelligence documents of ail types. The positions described should receive careful etudy and favorable attention in any general classification and wage review, "it trecommended het: S direct the Director of Pe sonnel to oon&ot an oerU classification and wage review of the Oca grack tracture with particular reference to parabie Zmctions of DD/1 components of similar size (00 and giving adequate weight to the ;supervisory and s4Mdnistrat1ve responsibilities inher- ent in OCR positions at levels from G841 to 05-14, and including specific review of the positions described above in the Graphics Register and the Document Branch of the CIA Library." 25X1A1 a Approved For Release 2000/09/06 : CIA-RDP62-01094R000100070006-5 Approved For Release 2000/09/06 : CIAIRDP62-01094R000100070006-5 2. with his conc studied with a yew to removal o request, therefore,that the race effect an an early date. by the Inspector Generals and structure should be thoroughly equities which now exist.
